nnnnnNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

@gmsrgreat, this is a good thing, at least they didnt wait like the last big one...

No comment!

I am glad I don't have to deal with a GMC Canyon owner wrecking into me, as I don't even see they sell much within my area.

...and the chevy too.

Relax, Guys...

I just read that an additional 90,000,000 vehicles will now be recalled because of more Takata airbag issues.

Kind of makes this GM thing pale into insignificance, doesn't it?

---------

This site is about pickup trucks. Why are they posting recall article about an underpowered car that gm forgot to put a trunk lid on it failing to stop?

@scott it's not a car lol, it has a real frame, leaf springs, a payload better then some half tons

@scott it's not a car lol, it has a real frame, leaf springs, a payload better than most 1/2 ton Ram 1500's.

There.

Fixed it for you!

Hardee har har. You boys never let a chance to smack down go

Luckily only old guys buy these trucks and they hardly ever speed.

I know everyone has recalls, but damn GM, are you trying to set a world record or something? Seems like its always something.

Colorado I LOVE YOU

Stop with the crap Patriotgrunt. All auto manufactures are guilty of corruption. Are you suggesting it's better to buy from FCA (dodge) who's headquarters are now in the Netherlands and has gone through not 1 but 2 bailouts? It's a simple fact that GM still has the most plants in the U.S. and still employs the most Americans. Outside of Ford's truckline Ford is no longer that American. The majority of their cars are European sourced.

Parents are Italian. Summer home in the Netherlands. Vans are Turkish. Powerplants and floor architecture are Italian. So depressing

roadram360 - MY BAD. I should of changed leaf to coil springs.

ha ha

"Or step up and buy a 1/2 ton but don't support socialism or a corrupt GM."

Definitely need to buy a Ford then.

Back in the good ol' days, those South American death squads killing union leaders, priests, woman and children used Ford Falcon's donated to the government by Ford.

One of the Ford Plants in Chile had a torture chamber on premise.............

That would be a way to keep the UAW in line!

Keep that great GM feeling...NOT..(Generic Motors)

You do know the Dodge truck is not the first to have coils at all 4 corners

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/pattern-of-ford-cover-ups/
Like I said Patriotgrunt they all have there dirty laundry. It doesn't make it acceptable but if we only bought from innocent car companies we would all be walking!

Even with few recalls Colorado is still more kewl..

Hey patriot fforget abouy this one?
http://www.autosafety.org/ford-transmissions-failure-hold-park

6000 accidents
1710 injuries
98 deaths

Further support for a recall came in the June, 1980 issue of Mother Jones Magazine which provided evidence indicating Ford knew for "at least 10 years" that transmission slippage was "killing people." Yet, in 1971, it "rejected design improvements" which would have cost 3 cents per car and would have resulted in an estimated 90% reduction in park-to-reverse repairs. The design of Ford's 1980 transmission has been modified.

"Fixed" it with a sticker instead of a real recall.

I guess we see where Ford's moral standing is.


Patriotgrunt your reading comprehension clearly suffers. Up to 62 deaths could be linked to the tires alone not to mention the deaths from Ford's own ignition cover-up. Articles could be posted all night about auto cover-ups. You are living in la la land if you think it's only GM!

If you can't understand the Ford / Firestone tire fiasco then it once again proves that your reading comprehension suffers! But that does tend to happen when your wearing the Ford Rose colored glasses.

If is gm its a poor connection if is a Ford ist
a bad connection,,

Patriotgrunt, it is admirable that you are bringing attention to those who have been affected by GM in the past. With respect to recalls, Ford, GM and Toyota have been guilty of withholding information concerning the safety of their vehicles. Some more than others but still guilty. So why are you venting on GM alone? How has GM affected you directly?

Those side tanks weren't defective, they were unprotected.

@Skinner : HAHA! I remember my dad got that sticker in the mail for his 72 Mercury . It has some instructions about applying the parking brake before leaving the vehicle. That car developed a rust hole in the truck lid in less than 2 years. It started using oil, a lot, at around 50,000 miles. It had vacuum assisted retractable headlamp covers and it rode nice,

Ford’s response to the fires — first refusing to acknowledge that the switches posed a fire hazard, then conducting four recalls over seven years — angered fire victims and consumer advocates. It does not hurt their cases that Ford was accused of dragging its feet in other high-profile recalls.

“It’s a cultural issue within Ford Motor Company,” said Rob Ammons, a Houston lawyer who is suing Ford on behalf of an Iowa man, Earl Mohlis, whose wife, Dolly, died after their home caught fire. The lawsuit claims the man’s 1996 Ford F-150 pickup caught fire in the garage. The blaze spread to the house, killing Mrs. Mohlis.

Ford, the company you can trust!

Twenty-two million Ford vehicles made from 1983 through 1995 have defective ignition modules that may cause the vehicle to stall and die on the highway at any time. Failure at highway speeds can cause the driver to lose control or even result in a stalled vehicle being hit by a truck. Some models had failure rates as high as 90%. According to Ford, two-thirds of the failures were of the "die on the road" type.

During the 1980's, NHTSA conducted five investigations into stalling in Ford vehicles. During those investigations, Ford withheld documents from NHTSA that would have shown a common cause of stalling...

To reduce costs, Ford installed the TFI on the distributor, one of the hottest locations under the hood. But because the TFI module is sensitive to heat, its mounting location creates an inordinate propensity for the TFI module to fail due to thermal stress. Rather than bearing the expense of moving the TFI module to a cooler location away from the engine, a solution that Ford engineers recommended to management for year's, Ford decided to employ a less costly solution: to leave the module on the distributor, but MAKE IT LAST LONG ENOUGH TO FUNCTION DURING THE WARRANTY PERIOD, thereby forcing consumers to bear the cost of post-warranty failures that Ford knew would continue to occur in large numbers. As a result, over 13 MILLION replacement TFI modules (which are designed to last for the life of the vehicle without maintenance or repair) have been sold to consumers at a cost of nearly $2 billion.

....Despite an extraordinary number of complaints from consumers, Ford managed to conceal the TFI problem from government regulators...

In the recall of Ford Explorers for Firestone tire tread separations, then Ford President & CEO Jacques Nasser repeatedly told the American public that "Your Safety Is Our Top Priority." Yet in Howard v Ford Motor Co., Ford told the court it didn't know what safety was. As Judge Ballachey observed after hearing the testimony of top executive including its former CEO Harold Poling, its former Vice Chairman Louis Ross and Vice Presidents Robert Transou and Helen Petrauskus among others:

Ford's dissimulation reached its nadir in the testimony of Bob Wheaton, Ford's witness designated as most knowledgeable about safety issues when he insisted that "safe is too subjective" and denied knowledge of any "written definition of what safe is within Ford Motor Company." Other Ford executives were similarly evasive when pressed on the question of whether or not a failed TFI module, under any circumstances, presented an unreasonable risk of safety. [P. 5].

That's right patriotgunt, drive a Ford! After all, at Ford, "Your Safety Is Our Top Priority!"™. Ford, the moral company!

You seemed worked up over the GM bailout. Why do you support Ram so much? After all, they were bailed out too, not to mention sold off to Fiat. Their HD line is based on a great diesel installed in the shittiest HD truck on the market. Has been for decades.

And what about Ford announcing all their massive new investments in Mexico? They've announced that they sending nearly every non-truck vehicle south of the border. No to mention they build their 6.7 Powerstroke there too. Ford - supporting American jobs!

There are lots of reasons to hate GM... many of which they share with other manufacturers... going bankrupt, not settling debts, short sighted planning, consistently bad to mediocre small and midsized cars. Some are unique to them... a massive, incompetently handled, recall with over a 100 fatalities that in some cases they have had to check/refix cars multiple times because they used the same part number for the new spring as part of the coverup of the issue. Another wild point about that epically bad recall (I mean lets be honest the ignition recall is probably the worst in history if you consider, size, scale, scope, injuries, death, coverup, incompetence... all those factors. It exceedes the disaster of the Pinto, the 6.0 diesel, Toyota's accelerators/floor mats, all the trouble caused by the Corvair, VW's diesels, and Tata's bags. While each of those other recalls might have an aspect or 2 that might exceed GM's ignition fiasco... none of them have all the issues together on the scale that the ignition fiasco does...

Now we have this recall... Lets be honest. This is a little one. Appears to have been caught on their own. 0 injuries, 0 deaths (reported). As long as they fix it fast and free of charge its a small honest mistake bound to happen in the complex world of manufacturing complex things. Regrettable and even preventable mistakes do occur even with all the steps to minimize. Occasional occurrences like this are part of doing business in this business... Just don't rip of the US Taxpayer if you cant handle the business.

BUY!!, GM!! Best pickups,best cars, simply the best!,

BUY GM!, they fix the problem. Not like frod mo co!

Sorry Skinner but I'm not seeing where Ford killed over 2,134 people over design failures.

The media and Lawyers have a way of sometimes exaggerating it's claims for it own benefit. 2000 fire related crashes doesn't mean 2000 people died because of fire. Many, if not most of those people may have died on impact from being t-boned, one of the worst forms of impact leading to a death. I know of 2 people who have died from side impacts, neither of those crashes resulted in a fire. Before you continue on your righteous attack on GM alone, maybe you should include FORD. After all, they are just a corporation who has more than it fair share of cover ups. Give this a read to how Ford places a monetary value on its owners and ask yourself would that have been enough for one of your family members.

http://auto.howstuffworks.com/1971-1980-ford-pinto12.htm

These little trucks are over rated. I know they struggled with a trailer at a good deal less than they are rated to do.

It would be nice to see them test it with 1500 pounds payload.

Still waiting to see if the 2.8 VM Motori (ie, Mini Dura Max) needs a belt change at 200,000 miles, like it needs in Libertys.

Coil springs aren't all that bad, the progressive coils on 2500 Rams out work a supposed SUPER DUTY F-250. They don't have that rigid GM ride. They turn a lot better then those GM 2500s too, but that'should another story for those pavement pounder, antique 6.0 V-8 trucks.

Lets take a look again at the actions of GM following their bailout. Some of you keep thinking this applies to other brands but it doesn't.

1. GM was provided $50 Billion in bailouts; $11 Billion will NEVER be repaid.

2. GM decided to not honor $450 Million of retiree benefits.

3. GM does not have to pay 10 years worth of federal taxes which accounts for another $20 Billion in bailout cash.

4. At the same time, GM was trying to cover up a faulty ignition switch that cost the lives of 124 people.

5. They then have the nerve to say their not responsible because that was old GM and new GM should not be held accountable. What a joke.

6. GM has decided to move manufacturing of Buicks to China. Not America. Not Canada. Not even Mexico. Yes China. A communist nation with socialist workers.

7. GM is running commercials to bash aluminum when they themselves plan on using it for their next trucks and SUVs. That's dishonest and short sided.

8. GM owes its future to America's taxpayers yet its selling out America more and more. GM has screwed its retirees. It does not care about us or the debt we paid for them.

9. BOYCOTT GM and make them pay.


Up to 62 deaths could be linked to the tires alone

Last I checked Ford doesn't build tires. But good try. Next time lets blame the bullets for gun murder deaths. Time to shut Hornady down. Their bullets have killed thousands. Back to reality. BOYCOTT GM!

I guess if we go by what you say Patriotgrunt. The ignition switch isn't GM problem either because they didn't build them. Delphi made them.

Looks like Ford didn't pay Federal Income Tax either.

This Ford clown needs to lay off the drugs.

It doesn’t get much more ‘American’ than the Ford Motor Company, which itself has allocated $2.52 billion in government funding as of late

It won't let me post the link to that last one but google

The 8 Biggest Corporate Welfare Recipients in America

Toyota is already making plans to expand their Mexico operations. They're in the process of moving a Corolla plant from Canada to Mexico right now.

"The Guanajuato site will be Toyota's second Mexican plant, joining the Tijuana plant that assembles the Tacoma – soon to ramp up to 89,000 units per year. Once the new Guanajuato plant comes on full steam, it is slated to produce around 200,000 units per year. It'll be the first site Toyota will open worldwide since it began focusing on utilizing the production capacity it already has. With 90 percent of its production capacity now in use, the Japanese auto giant is also planning to broaden its joint venture with Guangzhou in China as well."

http://www.autoblog.com/2015/04/16/toyota-guanajuato-mexico-plant-official/

How long until they start shifting production out of the US?

Has anyone but GM ever sent a recall notice about an issue to someone they actually already killed with that very issue?

Its happened several times with the ignition recall...

That's a special level of bad...

Johnny Doughnut head. Do you actually read the links you post on here? Did you eat paint chips as a kid? You are a special kind of stupid !!!
